Radio Car Travelogue 31 March - 3 April


Tuesday and a beautiful morning to be at Hickling Broad looking out at that big sky. Not a breath of wind and quite mild. I was here first to meet Eric Lindo from Hickling Environment & Resident's Alliance discussing Natural Englands view of the way the Broads are going. Rising levels and salt water incursion the main topics. Then it's into the Pleasureboat Pub where landlady Julie Mayhew is facing eviction. Closing date is April 16th. She's been offered accommodation but as for the pub itself - it'll probably go the way of many others these days although I can't see anyone getting permission to change its use to residential !! This item will be broadcast Wednesday morning.

Wednesday already! Today, the introduction of FREE swimming for the over 60's and in some council areas, the under 16's too. Not here at Wymondham where Rob Adams and Meryl Harding met me poolside to talk about it. Government funded for the next two years, locals were already pouring in !!
Thursday and Potter Heigham bridge where the centuries old crossing restricts vessels from passing through. I spoke to Robin Richardson who pilots the hire craft under the ancient arch. Higher water levels though mean that fewer boats are capable and he's seen numbers drop from a peak of 12,000 in one year to last years 2,000. Next for me, a quick jog across country to Melton Constable just in time to see teacher Rob Cameron of Astley Primary School arrive for work after a 16 mile run from his home in Horsford. The day is raising money for the Anthony Nolan Trust who'll benefit again when Rob completes the London Marathon. Today he was escorted by the three bee's on bikes !
Friday and a visit to a Norfolk entrepeneur - Matt Duerden who started part-time work as a butchers assistant at the age of 13. Left school at 16 one day and the next took over the butchery as the boss! Backed by his parents he's now 17 and making a real go of the shop in Bunwell on the Street.
Still on agrarian matters, I met up with Michael Mack, Director of Rural Enterprise Hub as we talk about the Grazing Exchange website matching landowners with farmers after grazing land. Find out more by going to the Easton College website.
